Trump makes bold play to strip Section 230 from Big Tech

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump in a late-night tweet made clear Section 230 shields for "Big Tech" has to go, or the National Defense Authorization Act with all its funding for the military won't pass. It's about time all the talk, talk, talk about Section 230 and the need to repeal is finally making it to the walk.

Neglecting foreign policy guarantees peril

Understandably, with COVID-19 raging, America — and the world — has turned its attention inward. But, as evidenced by the recent assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran's top nuclear scientist, the business of international relations has not paused. With escalating international tensions, America must continue to lead — both in arms and moral fortitude.

Roberts a disappointment to right

Michael McKenna writes in his column, "A new, better Supreme Court makes its debut in New York pandemic case" (Web, Nov. 28), that the court's vote should have been 9-0, but was 5-4. I agree with Mr. McKenna's assertion that the vote should have been 9-0.

Coins could carry virus

When the coronavirus was first detected, news reports said that it could survive on metal for up to fours hours. Knowing this, a thought came to mind about coins given as change when we shop. Who's to say that this isn't part of the reason that the pandemic is spreading like wildfire?

Remember Alien and Sedition Acts

While Cheryl K. Chumley does an admirable job of explaining the purpose and importance of the Tenth Amendment, she nevertheless errs badly in relying on the legacy of John Adams to vindicate opposition to domestic political tyranny ("Tyrannical governors are giving the Tenth Amendment a bad name," Web, Nov. 28). Adams is certainly a heroic historical figure, but as president he committed egregious abuses of executive authority. More specifically, he signed the Alien and Sedition Acts into law, making him guilty of precisely the same tyranny Ms. Chumley attributes to the governors she so thoroughly excoriates.

Money is the only reason the games still get played

- Associated Press

Even as the coronavirus rages out of control over wide swaths of the country, and some facets of society are beginning to shut down again in hopes of stemming the deadly tide, there are no plans to shutter sports like they did back in March. Too much money is at stake. Everyone is all-in on this utterly joyless pursuit.

Go away already, Obama

One would think a previous U.S. president would have the decency to stay out of the politics of a current presidential race. Bill Clinton, the Bushes and Jimmy Carter have done so, but not Barack Obama.

You borrowed it, you repay it

Socialism benefits elite groups while the rank and file suffer at the hands of the elite, their enablers and supporters. The current campaign to lift the "burden" of student-loan debt and place it squarely on the backs of the American taxpayer is a perfect and horrid example.
